D&S had the opportunity to install flooring on this creative project in Brownstown, PA. Homeowners Josiah and Kayla completely transformed the space, doing work on both floors and in loft spaces above some second-floor bedrooms as well!

Our work consisted of installing 3 types of flooring: Mohawk Flooring carpet, Beauflor luxury vinyl plank (LVP), and some sleek Armstrong Flooring sheet vinyl.

UPSTAIRS

In the kids’ bedrooms upstairs, we installed this Mohawk Flooring carpet (Product #; SP038, Color: #01). It goes well against the Barley-colored LVP by Beauflor.

LIVING ROOM + KITCHEN

In the open family room and kitchen area, we installed this Beauflor Barley-colored LVP, part of the Parkway line. It’s a light brown which they contrasted with some dark shades as well as mimicked with similar tones in their furniture and area rugs. Looks great!

MUDROOM

Who knew sheet vinyl could look so good? Cost-effective, waterproof, and beautiful! This Armstrong Flooring sheet vinyl, color Amalfi Black offers practicality and good looks, if you ask us.

LAUNDRY + POWDER ROOM

The sheet vinyl extends into both their powder room, right off the mudroom space, and it also extends into their laundry area. They contrasted the dark-colored floor with white walls and accented with wooden trim. The rustic barn wood-look with plants set around set both a classic feel and refreshing mood.


Great job with the project Josiah + Kayla! The space looks great, and thank you for choosing D&S to be a part of your renovation.

Commercial Project | Anytime Fitness in Lancaster, PA

We recently had the privilege of installing flooring for a new Anytime Fitness location opening in Lancaster, PA. Renovations in the nearly 200 year old building began at the end of summer 2018 with an aim to be open in the late fall. For our part, it was a challenging and rewarding project.

Floor Preparation

The preparation of the subfloor was by far the most extensive and demanding part of the installation. The condition of the original subfloor, while nostalgic, was not fit for the new resilient luxury vinyl plank (LVP), carpet tile, rubber, athletic turf, and ceramic tile flooring to be installed. Our technicians got right to work bringing in 118 sheets of 1/2” plywood, almost 4,000 square feet in total! They nailed down each 4’ x 8’ sheet and quickly began patching all the joints with mortar for a smooth surface wall-to-wall.

When the patchwork was dry, our flooring technicians tagged in Lester, our warehouse manager, to sand the joints to a seamless finish. Together with a floor polishing machine custom-fit with sandpaper, Lester smoothed out the surface of the patchwork like a pro. Then he found the nearest telephone booth, changed into his superhero outfit with matching cape and flew off to prevent the next catastrophe!

Rubber, Turf, LVP, & Carpet

Once the subfloor preparation was complete, our technicians took the next 3 days to install 1500 square feet of rubber flooring, 1100 square feet of athletic turf flooring, commercial grade LVP, and commercial carpet tile. Josh, our lead technician, went on wrap up the project installing 6” black cove base throughout the space.

Commercial Resilient Vinyl

At the front of the building, our technicians installed a floating LVP, Patcraft’s Click Refresh LVP. The color of choice was “Spiced Cherry” (#820). Waterproof, highly scuff-resistant, and available in tons of different looks, LVP has become a very popular product for commercial projects.

Carpet Tile

The commercial carpet tile is also a Patcraft product. The style is called “Dazzle” and the color “Exquisite”. Why yes, we think it is quite exquisite! Don’t you? For this installation, the tiles were secured to the subfloor with pressure sensitive adhesives, making replacement super easy. 👌🏽

Turf

This fun purple stuff is 6’ wide athletic turf by Ecore in color “Better Purple”. The turf is glued to the subfloor with Egrip III adhesive which happens to be low-odor, non-flammable, and rated with zero volatile organic compound (VOC) emission. That’s good on the lungs. 🙂

Rubber

We also installed Ecore Rubber Floor Everlast 4’ x 50’ rolls in “Pumpin Purple”. Oh yeah! Pumpin’ purple! Get it? Pumpin’? Cuz it’s a gym.. where people “pump” weights? Oh man, you guys are killin’ us! On a more serious note, rubber floors for gym spaces continue to be a win with their shock absorbency, durability, affordability, and easy maintenance. A bonus about Ecore’s materials is the fact that they’re manufactured with recycled materials. Go green! ♻️ 🌱

A Happy Customer

A happy customer is high priority of ours. When we can get the job done with excellence and the customer is pleased, we’ve accomplished our goal. So when Anytime Fitness’ owner and general manager, Courtney, was pleased with our team and the final product, AND she left us a really positive online review (which, if we’ve installed for you, you can do right here if you’d like), we were thrilled. Everybody wins!

Hands down the hardest working crew I have worked with in a long time. Very professional and knowledgeable. Shows up early and works until they finish everything they said they would. I highly recommend D&S Flooring.

Thank you so much Courtney and Anytime Fitness for the privilege to serve you, and we wish you the best as you open your new location!
